Kik is a place where you can chat with random people online or with your friends or family. It is a great way to make online friendships with people around the globe. Kik first started as just a messaging app, but later on, they added many features such as calls, video calls, etc. 

When using Kik, you do not know who you are chatting with because anonymity is one of the biggest Kik features. So whenever you are using this app, remember to stay safe and always be alerted.

About the video call feature

They only recently added a video call feature on Kik. It was the most requested feature, so they listened to their users and added it to the app. Since then, their monthly registered users have been growing rapidly. You can video chat with others on Kik, but the videos are shown as a small little bubble on the screen that is not bigger than your profile icon. While you are on a video chat, you will still be able to send messages, gifs, stickers, and photos in the chat with that person. 

Kik has said that they have decided to add this feature to the app because they want to mimic the way people see each other and talk to each other in real life, even when that is not possible. They also stated that several teens use their app, so they wanted to make them more comfortable and grant their wishes. As you can see, Kik cares about its users.

How to make video calls on Kik

  • Open the Kik app on your phone and ensure that you are logged in to your account.
  • Find a friend among the list of friends you can chat with and open their chat.
  • When your chat shows up, look for the little camera button located somewhere in the top right corner of your phone’s screen.
  • Click on that button, and when it becomes blue, you will know that the call has been sent. All you need to do is wait for that other person to accept it and enter that call. If you perhaps do not see this button on your chat screen, make sure that you are using the latest version of the Kik app. You can check that in the App Store or Google Play Store. If a new version of the app is currently available, download and install it and try these steps again.
  • If your friend accepts your video call invitation, their picture should show up in the form of a little bubble on your screen, and you will be able to see them. As we previously mentioned, you will still be able to send messages and other stuff in the chat even if you are currently in a video call.

How to make group chats on Kik

The steps to video-calling a group of friends on Kik is the same as stated above. You will be able to have a video chat with a maximum of six people on Kik. And when each friend accepts the video call, their bubble will show up on the screen of other users. The bubbles will be pushed to the right side of the phone screen when everyone joins the video chat. You will still be able to see them; you just need to swipe left.
